Grateful thanks have been expressed to the Cornish Pirates for enabling members of the Wooden Spoon charity to make a half-time collection at last Friday’s Cornish Pirates versus Exeter Chiefs match.
The excellent sum of £880-65 was raised on the night, with thanks expressed by Wooden Spoon’s representative David Pooley, who said:
We are very grateful indeed to the Cornish Pirates and to the generosity of their supporters. Monies raised will help fund Wooden Spoon’s Cornish projects.
It was a great effort off the field on the night, as it was by the Pirates on it, and we wish the team and everyone involved an enjoyable and very successful season.
The Cornish Pirates were keen to help promote the excellent work undertaken by Wooden Spoon and for the match the team also wore distinctive Wooden Spoon socks.
